Maneesh Sharma directorial Fan has completed 10 days at the box office. Unlike the expectations, this Shah Rukh Khan starrer thriller has continued to drop in its 2nd weekend and only fetched Rs 7.75 crore. Now its total 10 days collections only bring in Rs 79.25 crore that is a clear disappointment for the producers.
Made with the budget of Rs 105 crore, Fan despite a fantastic opening weekend of Rs 52.35 crore, fell down drastically in the first week and each day shows a big drop which is unexpected. After this forgettable week, the makers hoped that the film would pick up in the second weekend as there was not any big film that released but again all the predictions went wrong and it was another disappointed weekend for Fan.
In split, Fan has collected Rs 1.70 crore on Friday, Rs 2.65 crore on Saturday and Rs 3.40 crore on Sunday. This is certainly a subject of research as this is not only shocking numbers but in the recent past, there have not been seen such a massive fall down of any Khan movie. This is the worst performance of any Shah Rukh Khan film in a recent past.
Although, Fan with Rs 79.25 crore surpassed the lifetime total of Neerja (Rs 75.61 crore) and become second highest Bollywood grosser of the year but surely this would not please the makers who were expecting Fan to be the biggest blockbuster of the year.
It seems that Fan is now fighting for its survival and the coming third week is very crucial for it. From here, it is very difficult for Fan to recover its making cost i.e. 105 crore. It has to gain decently to get even closer to that mark but right now it is very difficult and the next week will bring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Baaghi which will surely get past Fan.
